A few quick comments. Most people seem to think "dance the ghost with me" refers to Ghost Dance. I reckon that, on the contrary, it refers to The Sisters of Mercy, circa 1982 to 1985. In an interview, Eldritch said the song was written as a "welcome abroad" for Patricia Morrison. In this context, I ...

1959

I’ve been listening to 1959 on repeat today after being verily moved by it and feeling like I’ve “really gotten� what it’s all about. To me, the whole song is about disappointment and regret. The narrator reflects on his childhood and how everything started out pure and clean, including hi...

I think his (why is it never a her?) role is rather questionable, since so many musicians manage to successfully produce their own music :? Having said that, that's not to dismiss them entirely. It's when they take on the role of svengali that I get suspicious... To understand the importance of a g...

But for something to be "modern" with or without the "post" prefix doesnt it have to be current? - which the Sisters certainly aren't Modernism and postmodernism are commonly perceived more as "ways of being" (sorry to sound like a Nance :lol: ) than historical eras.

The sisters:modernism with or without the 'post' prefix?

The distinction between modernism and postmodernism has always seemed barren to me. Furthermore, I believe each artist should be taken on his own terms. Nonetheless, I embarrassingly admit that sorting artists into categories can make for what I consider interesting conversation. Often it can shed l...
